FOOTNOTE – Some sad news
William Lemire – “Bill” as we knew him – passed away last week.  He was a Tuesday night regular and also attended and helped out at Toronto Swing Dance Society’s monthly Friday night dances. His obituary is posted here and there’s a link to leave a message of condolences for his family.
